Considering that Spotify stubbornly refuses to add support for Chromecast and Airplay while continuing to push for their own function Spotify Connect, I feel that a function to control an Android or iOS client from the desktop app would be a great idea.
As it stands now, I can control a mobile device from another mobile device, my desktop from a mobile device but not a mobile device from the desktop. This just feels stupid.
Making already paying customers purchase a Spotify Connect certified system might be what Spotify is aiming for, but I feel that this should be a simple and easy idea to implement without any fuzz..
Hi, thanks for the post. This is actually already on the way for desktop 🙂
